Sheila Joynes's Musical Diary

Christmas School Carol Services


It has been a busy week. On Monday afternoon I had a rehearsal for Pershore High School’s Christmas Services which were then held in Pershore Abbey on Wednesday morning, evening and Thursday morning.

On Tuesday morning I rehearsed for St Mary’s Convent School service, held that evening in St George’s Roman Catholic Church in Worcester. This was where Elgar was organist in the 1880s. The organ he played is still there and from the newer console, those pipes can be played. The stops for those pipes are marked with E for Elgar.

If you want to see the photos I took in St George’s Church, have a look here.
